Plaque Attack Experiment

Did you know February is National Children's Dental Health Month? Well now you do!

If your a teacher or have a child at home and would like to teach them about dental plaque, here is a fun easy science experiment!


  • 2 plastic cups
  • 2 spoons
  • 4 tsp. yeast
  • 2 cups of warm water (not hot)
  • 1 TB of sugar
  1. Place 2 tsp. of yeast into each cup.
  2. Add 1 cup of warm water into each cup.
  3. Add 1 TB sugar to ONE cup.
  4. Stir to mix (using separate spoons)
  5. Watch the PLAQUE ATTACK!!
This is an great lesson to show children why its so important that we brush and floss our teeth twice a day.

*If your a teacher you can pair this lesson with a new toothbrush for each student for extra excitement!
